The incident was reported about 7:20 p.m. at 11414 Iverson Road, where one car toppled on top of the other in the hole, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department

Two people in the vehicles were able to pull themselves out from the hole before first responders arrived to rescue the two others, said LAFD spokeswoman Margaret Stewart. The two rescued by firefighters were taken to the hospital for non life-threatening injuries.

The two who pulled themselves out were uninjured, Stewart said.

Because the roadway was completely compromised, authorities said it could not support emergency vehicles, so firefighters slid ladders down to help the trapped motorists.

The sinkhole fully cut across the southbound lane of Iverson Road and the entire road was closed, deemed unpassable to traffic.
